First in Human is a documentary capturing the real-life experiences of doctors, researchers, staff, patients and their caregivers, at the National Institutes of Health Clinical Center. For over a year, Discovery, in collaboration with John Hoffman ("Weight of the Nation," "Sleepless in America"), was embedded in the Clinical Center to capture the challenges faced in diagnosing and treating diseases.
Narrated by Jim Parsons ("The Big Bang Theory," "Hidden Figures"), the three-episode series showcases the innovative work that takes place within NIH’s Building 10 and provides an in-depth look at the reality of experimental medicine in clinical trials.
First in Human airs its first episode in August 2017 on Discovery. View the NIH News Release. View the NIH Director's Blog.
Join @Discovery, @NIHDirector, @NIHClinicalCntr, @NIH, @JohnHoffmanDocs and more on Aug. 9, 2017, from 1-2 pm ET for a tweet chat about the documentary and First in Human clinical trials. Follow the chat on

All of the patients who come to the NIH Clinical Center participate in a clinical trial. Clinical trials look at new ways to prevent, detect, or treat disease. Treatments might be new drugs or new combinations of drugs, new surgical procedures or devices, or new ways to use existing treatments. The goal of clinical trials is to determine if a new test or treatment works and is safe.

- “Do You See What I See”
In the Detroit area and throughout the Midwest Michael Horner has been collected by the savvy collectors and investors for more than 20 years. Realizing that his work will do nothing but escalate in value, the collectors that I’ll share with you have been not so quietly purchasing his original pieces at what has been phenomenal and undervalued prices.

It’s World Sickle Cell Day, and we’re taking a look at the chronic pain and regular hospitalizations that are the reality for many suffering from sickle cell disease.
Nikki Peterson, like approximately 100,000 other Americans, was born with sickle cell anemia. The 43-year-old lives in Upper Marlboro, Md., and ends up in the hospital about four times during what she calls a good year.
Once a month, she undergoes a grueling process called hemapheresis. All of the blood is removed from her body, the platelets and plasma are separated out and returned to her, and then Peterson is given 8 to 12 units of packed red blood cells. This helps to mitigate the pain she lives with every day.
“I don’t know what it means to be without pain. I have nothing to compare it to,” Peterson tells The Root from her bed at Doctors Community Hospital in Greenbelt, Md. “I have what I call my normal pain, and my pain where I need to be in the hospital. They always ask what your pain scale is from 1 to 10. I function on a normal person’s 7 to 8. It’s like my 2.”
